WHITE HOUSE (AP) - He calls Lewis Libby one of the most capable and talented individuals he has ever known.  Vice President Cheney has released a statement saying he accepts, with deep regret, Libby's decision to resign as his chief of staff.

Libby resigned after today's indictment in the CIA leak investigation.

Cheney says he won't comment on the charges, since this is a pending legal proceding.

The vice president's statement notes that a person is presumed innocent until a contrary finding is made by a jury.  He says Libby is entitled to answer the charges and fully air all the facts in the case.
